VERY IMPORTANT! If you arrive after 22:00, it is NOT possible to stay with me. Your plane should land at 20:00 at the latest. That leaves you enough time to get your luggage, find your way to me, etc., as it's about 1h from the airports to my home.
The apartment is located in Hellersdorf, the very best of the old DDR on the U5. The apartment is on the 5th floor of a 1980s block. There's a nice living room with a balcony overlooking the communal gardens, a kitchen and a shared bathroom with me.
I'm Ulrike, a 52 year old woman who enjoys having people stay in her home and hearing their stories of traveling around the world. Until now my listing was on my son's account, but after having had more than 40 bookings (with 4.5 star reviews!) I feel comfortable doing it on my own. :-)
My apartment is located in Hellersdorf, the very best of the old DDR. The apartment is on the 5th floor of a 1980s block. There's a nice living room with a balcony overlooking the communal gardens, a kitchen (though cooking is only allowed until 22:00!!!), and a bathroom.
Your room is a good size with a comfortable 140cm wide double bed and a big window with a clear and uninterrupted outlook.
All bedding and towels are supplied.
Hellersdorf is on the U5 line that goes direct to Alexanderplatz in 25 minutes. The apartment is just over 5 minutes walk from the station. Hellersdorf also has a good and modern centre with cinema, supermarkets, plenty of other shops and even a piazza with excellent Mexican and Greek restaurants. It's definitely not the city centre, but the neighbourhood has its charm.
Between her house and the centre of Berlin are some lesser known but very good attractions, including the Gardens of the World which has many different styles of garden from different countries, Tierpark (Berlin's second zoo). Both locations are just over 10 minutes away from the house and really recommendable to see.
It's also an excellent place to explore further into the east, including the home of Berthold Brecht at Buckow. There's plenty of nature around and a few lakes. Whether you like nature or not, you'll definitely like your stay here.
We're looking forward to hearing from you.
Zugang für Gäste
The room is at the other end of the apartment to the living room and my bedroom, so you can come home late without worrying about disturbing me, however, as the kitchen is next to my room cooking is sadly not possible after 22:00. Of course you can still use the microwave etc.
Interaktion mit Gästen
You can have as much interaction or privacy as you want. :-)
Weitere wichtige Infos
Smoking is absolutely NOT permitted inside the apartment as I have a big balcony. There will be a €100 penalty if you smoke inside as I want the room to be in perfect condition for my guests.
Treat my apartment and my neighbors like you treat yours! Be respectful, but most importantly feel at home. Please only smoke on the balcony.
I'm a very happy and positive 52 year old woman. My son Patrik introduced me to Airbnb 1.5 years ago and did all the online management for me. However, now I thought it's time that I take over after I've gotten enough experience and feel comfortable enough with my English.
I've thoroughly enjoyed hosting guests and it has been a lot of fun. I'll be happy to supply you with any information you need. I'll be there for you, when you need me (when I'm at home) or you can have as much privacy as you want. :-)
